Greet the day Brother Five Pointers!

I pray that you and your families are hale and healthy.

Alas, it has been two months since my last post to our page but due to the current pandemic, there has been nothing to report...

As per the directives of our Grand Master, Blue Lodges will be able to meet in June for their Stated Communications. This being said, Five Points Lodge Stated Communication will be held on Thursday evening, June 11th, at 1930 (7:30pm) at 1505 Magruder El Paso TX. 79925.

It is highly suggested that all members of the various Lodges of District #60 attend their own Lodge meetings but not to pay courtesy visits to Lodges during this time.

Due to restrictions made at various levels of government, social distancing will be observed and there will be no meal served before our meeting. Hand sanitizer will be available and it is highly suggested that all attendees wear masks. However, if any of the brothers do not feel safe for any reason in attending, please stay home. Also, if you are showing symptoms of Covid-19 or are not feeling well, heed discretion and please stay home.

The June Communication is the customary meeting where Lodge officers are elected. This being said, our Induction of Officers is scheduled for the morning of Saturday, June 27th. Time will be announced when known.

With the projected problematic ebb and flow of Covid-19, the Grand Master may continue to hold off on stated meetings of any kind after June. There is no way to know for sure.

Due to the possibility of further meetings in the future being an iffy thing, our Worshipful Master has an agenda for the meeting business and has stated that no other business will be addressed unless it is on the agenda. If you have business for this upcoming meeting, please email me at [email protected] or text me at 915-740-1279 and I will see to putting it on the agenda.

Be well and Be Safe!

Fraternally,

Good Brother Five Pointer!

The Worshipful Master, Wardens and Officers of Five Points Lodge send you greetings and salutations. We wish you and your families good health in these turbulent times and should you require assistance, the Lodge is here to help if at all possible.

This year, Five Points Lodge is celebrating One Hundred Years of Masonic fraternalism!

The Lodge had chosen to celebrate our Centennial Saturday, July 11th, 2020, with the venue and all other aspects to be announced when organized. Sadly, with the arrival of the Covid-19 virus, this date is now *tentative* (as most things are at this time). Once safe to do so, we ask you to please consider attending! Please keep your Lodge in mind, and make sure we have your contact information available so we can keep you updated on this and other important events.

Our page here will be updated regularly and you can even address concerns and questions about the Centennial and other Lodge activities.

Normally, our regular Monthly Stated Communications are held the second Thursday of the month at 7:30PM. Presently, we are meeting at 1505 Magruder St. El Paso TX. (Dinner precedes the meeting at 6:30pm.), however, all meetings have been temporarily suspended by the Grand Master as a result of the ongoing crisis.

When our lives return to normal, YOU are always welcome to attend YOUR Lodge (and are encouraged to do so whenever possible).

Brethren, know that each and every one of you are missed at our meetings and functions. There are young Master Masons of our Lodge who only know the faces which they see every month at our monthly communication. Whenever possible, consider joining us in Lodge so that these young upcoming leaders of our Lodge can meet those members so often mentioned and held in good regard.

Lastly brothers, be so kind and contact me, text is best, (at the number under my name) and send me or clarify your email address and/or preferred method of contact.

With warmest fraternal regards,
Barry J. Boetto

Greet the day Brothers all!

Brother Secretary here with some fantastic news...

ALL of the membership (dues) cards have been sorted, appropriate letters written, envelops stamped and addressed and ALL, yes ALL the cards, whether you are an Endowed, Life, 50 Year or dues paying member, and notices went out on 20 December!

For some of you, depending on your location, they may take the approximate week to arrive, but for most, they will get there by Christmas!

With that in mind, if any of our dues paying members wish to wait for their letter, feel free! Please remember though that, REGARDLESS of when Grand Lodge gets us our cards, your membership does expire on the 31st of December for the current year. Keeping that in mind, you may mail your payments to me now or await your letter.

Five Points Lodge #1137

El Paso, TX, 79925

As soon as I get your dues brothers, your cards will be deposited at the closest Realm of Mail (post office) and be on its' way to you post haste! (See what I did there with the word 'post'?)

Also brothers all, please let me know of your charitable volunteering and donations! It goes a long way when we all have something to add to this tally!

Looking forward to corresponding, speaking, texting and meeting as many of you as I can this, our 100th Anniversary Year!

Be well one and all!

Brother Secretary here again!

Do NOT FORGET our Centennial Opening Ceremony and Holiday Dinner this Saturday, 14 December at I believe 6PM...more on that after our Stated Meeting tonight (which I hope to see as many of you attend as can!)

Stay tuned for other happenings during our Centennial Year!

Be well!

Greet the day Brothers!

Brother Secretary here with some *exciting* news... our membership (dues) cards have finally appeared out of the ether!

Might it have been the call to Grand Lodge yesterday morning (speaking to a wonderful young lady there who I believe was highly overworked that day and probably had 10,000 things on her desk at the time) and being told that they were all mailed on 20 November and to sit tight until right before Christmas to get back to them to see if anything could be done from their end...

Could it have been the fruitless calls and subsequent visit to our postal branch speaking to the branch supervisor (who was very polite and as helpful as he could be) which, wonder of wonders, after having been told there was nothing that could be done about it...

...have seen the mysterious appearance at the Lodge *not less than 2 hours later* of not only our membership cards but those missing from El Paso Lodge as well...

In truth brothers, I have no clue what finally brought them home but they are here!

Now, sadly, I must ask your patience while I type out the appropriate letters for the appropriate recipients and get the mundane tasks of prepping envelops and such prepared for the mass mailing. I will endeavor *greatly* to not make the same bone-headed first year secretarial mistakes that I did last year.

With that in mind and the fact I have some serious family business to attend to in New Mexico this Friday thru Monday, again I ask your patience to allow me to get these tasks done by the middle of next week.

Be well and all the best to you and yours!
Bro. Barry Boetto

Greet the day and Merry New Year one and all!

Facebook informs me 219 people haven't heard from me lately. Very well...

Tomorrow is Five Points Lodge first stated meeting of the new year!
Dinner at 6:30, meeting at 7:30. I'm inviting all 219 of you who I have heinously ignored to join us!

Now, just to be fair, if all 219 of you are planning on coming, give us a shout so we can expand the table a bit for you! You know we would love to see you!

-Bro. Secretary

Brethren,
This weeks agenda deals primarily with The month of January Stated Meeting. Our stated meeting is scheduled for 01/10/19. Dinner will be served at 6:30 with the Stated Meeting starting at 7:30. I look forward to see our Brethren at this meeting.

Sincerely
William Buster, WM

01/01/2019

Greet the day and Happy 2019 Brothers!

December of this year will mark our 100th Anniversary as a Blue Lodge! If you are local and haven't been to Lodge lately, come out and join us for dinner before our stated meetings every second Thursday of the month. Dinner at 6:30 and meeting at 7:30.

Attend one of our Initiations or join us as we attend initiations in the District and feel the joy of becoming a member of the Craft all over again!

Come to one of our practice nights on every other Thursday of the month at 6:00 and sit in on our practice sessions for Lodge work.
Sure it may not sound as fun as catching a football game on TV but sharing time with your Brothers isn't something you can "tape" or TiVO or whatever one does these days and catch it at your convenience later.
Your Brothers are the "now". Live in the "now". Catch the game you recorded later...

Those of us newer to the Craft hope to see you sometime!

Be well Brothers all!
Brother Secretary, Lodge 1137

Well Brothers, after picking up our membership cards at the Lodge on Friday evening the 7th of December at 5pm, and having two Masonic meetings in the last three days, as of 2pm today, your new secretary has mailed out all Endowed and Life membership cards and all dues notices. I've done my best brothers considering the delay in time we had in getting our cards.
Delays not withstanding, let's all try and get our dues in as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience in the matter brothers.
Be well!

Why do brothers on the sidelines still insist on correcting people during lodge meetings or Degrees? There is NO reason for it , there is a reason the lodge has a WM and we have a District Instructor, when attending a lodge don’t correct because it’s not your place. It’s disrespectful and it gets in the brothers head the rest of the meeting or degree and he is doubting his abilities. None of us are the opening and closing degree police . It doesn’t make us look smarter or above another brother and it disrupts the lodge and makes guys who are trying not want to attend . The place for correction is at practice. Or after the meeting in private with the WM or DI or as a friend . The majority of the time the ones correcting from side lines are wrong also... Brothers this helps no one so please cut it out.....
Anybody recognize the Brother on the right? I think he was lost...from Kansas, made a Mason in El Paso, went to Korea and somehow ended up with Brothers in DFW! Glad to have you back stateside Brother Austin White!!
Brethren, just a reminder that we will be practicing for a FC Degree tonight (8/16)) at 6:00. I still have a few positions to fill for the degree team, so please try to attend.
Brethren.. 5 Points Lodge will be conferring an EA Degree on August 24th at 7:00 PM. I am in the process of putting the degree team together. If you want to participate, please contact me by email or text. Dave
